The paths were cleared for President-in-exile N Srinivasan's possible return to the BCCI top post after a two-judge probe panel found no evidence against his team Chennai Super Kings in the T20 spot-fixing and betting scandal which rocked the sixth edition of the tournament but interim chief feels it's up-to him to decide on his return.

BCCI vice-president Niranjan Shah too backed the idea. "He himself has stepped down and now as probe is already finished, given to the working committee already, Srinivasan can come any time he wants to. He can chair the meeting," Shah said when asked if Srinivasan can chair the GC meeting in the capital.

The Board's Working Committee and the IPL Governing Council will meet to take a final call on the issue after the two-member panel, comprising former High Court Judges T Jayaram Chouta and R Balasubramanian, submitted its report to the BCCI Working Committee which met in Kolkata on Sunday.
